HTC One E8 Smartphone Review

87% HTC One E8 Smartphone Review

Now in plastic as well. The One M8 was a very successful high-end device for HTC. Now, the Android device with a curved metal chassis is also available with a plastic case and high-resolution camera. We look at the changes and tell you if the One E8 is a real highlight as well.

HTC Desire Eye Smartphone Review

87% HTC Desire Eye Smartphone Review

Selfie show-off. HTC expands its product line around its One M8 flagship and now has a smartphone with high-performance hardware dubbed Desire EYE. It is primarily aimed at selfie fans in view of a high-resolution front-facing camera. The lens promises decent pics with 13 MP and a dual-LED flash, and it is in fact quite compelling. An IP certification rounds off the total package.

Lenovo Yoga 2 1051F Windows Tablet Review Update

78% Lenovo Yoga 2 1051F Windows Tablet Review Update

Yoga goes Windows. We're about to take a look at the Windows version of the ergonomic acrobat that is the Yoga 2. We've got a lot of questions: Did Lenovo equip this tablet with the same great IPS panel? How's the battery life compared to the Android model's? Are there any hardware updates? Read our review to find out what we discovered.

76% HP Envy x2 15-c000ng Convertible Review

Fan-less. HP's 15.6-inch convertible wants to score with an energy-efficient processor from Intel's new Broadwell lineup, which enables a fan-less design in the Envy. A Full HD, IPS screen and good battery life are also part of the bundle.

Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro Review

84% Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro Review

Pro as in projector? Lenovo shows its innovative side: The Yoga Tablet 2 Pro can be hung up on a wall, has an integrated subwoofer, and even a projector is installed. At a first glance, that is enough to provide a "wow" factor - but we will check whether the rest of the tablet is just as awesome.

HP Pavilion 13-a093na x360 Convertible Review Update

75% HP Pavilion 13-a093na x360 Convertible Review Update

Red temptation. The Pavilion 13 would like to spare buyers the necessity of choosing between tablet and notebook experience by combining both worlds. It is driven by an AMD APU. In addition, it delivers good battery life and plenty of storage space.

Intel Core M-5Y70

82% Intel Core M-5Y70 "Broadwell" Review

Performance goes up, energy consumption goes down? After a several-month delay, Intel has finally released the fifth incarnation of their "Core" architecture, codenamed Broadwell. It's even coming on the market this year -- at least in a few machines. Initially, the new, extremely low-energy Core M series will only be used in the improved 14 nm manufacturing process. Is it a dream come true? Can we now expect to see high-performance, passively cooled Windows tablets?

Asus Zenbook NX500JK-DR018H Ultrabook Review

86% Asus Zenbook NX500JK-DR018H Ultrabook Review

Symbiosis. A powerful notebook does not have to be bulky and loud if it can also be dignified, subtle and quiet. Why pretentious and not understated? Asus thinks it knows what wealthy customers want and creates an Ultrabook that combines performance and elegance in a simple yet sophisticated chassis. Can this symbiosis really set new records in every category, just as Asus promises?

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (SM-N910F) Smartphone Review

90% Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (SM-N910F) Smartphone Review

Dazzler. The concept of the Galaxy Note, a high-end smartphone with a digitizer, is still unique and well implemented by Samsung. But the device cannot utilize the promised additional performance of the Snapdragon 805. However, the Note 4 probably has the best smartphone display, which shines bright and can also convince outdoors.

86% First Impressions: Asus Zenbook NX500JK in Review

Alluring. Asus aims at tech enthusiasts with its new 15-inch Zenbook generation. The flat aluminum unibody houses a standard-voltage i7 processor paired with an upper middle-class Nvidia graphics card. The highlight of this model seems to be the 4K panel. It offers high resolutions, great colors, high contrast and wide viewing angles. Is this the winner?

HTC Google Nexus 9 (Wi-Fi / 32 GB) Tablet Review

86% HTC Google Nexus 9 (Wi-Fi / 32 GB) Tablet Review

Candy lickin' good. The 64-bit version of Android 4.0 Lollipop and the matching 64-bit processor from Nvidia are certainly the big debuts in the Nexus 9. However, the new architecture apparently has some pitfalls and did not run quite smoothly in the test. Otherwise, we missed the attention to detail in HTC's tablet, which could, however, still score with a good performance and decent battery life.

LG L Fino Smartphone Review

80% LG L Fino Smartphone Review

Cool deal. The LG L Fino is a compact entry-level smartphone with a 4.5-inch display, Qualcomm quad-core SOC, as well as UMTS and NFC. For around 160 Euro (~$200) MSRP, the phone comes nicely equipped. We subject the LG L Fino to our battery of tests to get an idea of the performance.

Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 (10.1 inch/Wi-Fi/1050F) Review

83% Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 (10.1 inch/Wi-Fi/1050F) Review

Ergonomic acrobat. This tablet can literally be hung up on a nail. The most striking feature of the new, affordable Yoga scion is undoubtedly its flexible stand that proved extremely handy in the test, although it also increases the weight. Our report will, of course, closely examine the technical aspects, screen, connectivity, and battery life.

Sharp Aquos Crystal Smartphone Review

82% Sharp Aquos Crystal Smartphone Review

A sharp edge. The term "edge-to-edge" has now become a common marketing ploy to advertise most any portable with a display, but Sharp have taken the term one step further. We find out why the Aquos Crystal is the 2015 CES Innovation Awards Honoree with a closer look at its striking and alluring design.

82% Asus Memo Pad 8 ME181CX Tablet (Pro 7 Entertainment Pad) Review

We love? The Memo Pad 8 from Asus is also available as “Pro Sieben Entertainment Pad”. In cooperation with the media group, the buyer supposedly gets a "100 Euros (~$125) Entertainment Voucher". Read our review to find out what this means and if the device is any good.

Huawei Ascend G7 Smartphone Review

82% Huawei Ascend G7 Smartphone Review

The gentle giant. Huawei's Ascend G7 towers over many other smartphones with its 5.5-inch screen. In our tests we will clarify whether its performance and build are also outstanding in view of the affordable 299 Euros (~$372).

Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro Convertible Review

82% Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro Convertible Review

Often imitated, never duplicated. Lenovo was a first-mover in the 360-degree hinge segment, but they’re not content to rest on their laurels. Instead, the company brings us the thinnest, lightest, and most ambitiously-designed Yoga yet. Don’t miss our full review to see how the Yoga 3 Pro stacks up.

86% First Impressions: Google Nexus 9 in Review

Two become one. This time the latest Google tablet is produced by HTC, replacing the models Nexus 7 and Nexus 10. It is the first product with the new Android 5.0 Lollipop, and looks pretty good. The new operating system now also supports 64-bit processors, and the Nexus 9 obviously uses one.

Ecoo Focus E01 Smartphone Review

78% Ecoo Focus E01 Smartphone Review

1080p on a budget. A 5.2-inch FullHD LG display with a higher PPI than an Apple Retina display on a Chinese smartphone for less than $150? It's a mouthful, but the bottom line is that the Focus E01 offers one of the best and brightest 1080p displays for the inexpensive asking price.

Acer Aspire Switch 10 Full HD Convertible Review Update

78% Acer Aspire Switch 10 Full HD Convertible Review Update

Brillant. Acer's smallest convertible is now available with a Full-HD display. The price difference is only 30 Euro (~$37) and seems to be well worth it. But is the battery life is shorter than before and how fast is the new CPU? In our review, we try to answer both questions and take a detailed look at the display as well.

Nokia Lumia 830 Smartphone Review

84% Nokia Lumia 830 Smartphone Review

Farewell Nokia. Microsoft promises customers an affordable flagship smartphone with the Lumia 830. However, the technical specs position the device in the mid-range. A small quad-core and a screen with a low HD resolution is simply not premium range. On the other hand, the build and choice of materials will satisfy the discerning. The biggest drawback is the price.

83% Toshiba Satellite P50t-B-10T Notebook Review

Pixel machine. Outsider - trailblazer? While the competition is equipping their high-definition luxury-range with Nvidia GPUs, the Japanese manufacturer relies on AMD's Radeon R9. Will the combination of a 4K screen, fast computing cores, build, and ergonomics result in a round bundle that deserves our purchase recommendation?

Apple iPad Mini 3 Tablet Review

88% Apple iPad Mini 3 Tablet Review

Mini update. The changes of the new iPad Mini 3 are small: You only get a fingerprint reader. Otherwise, it is virtually identical with its predecessor. Our review shows why the iPad Mini 3 is still a very good tablet.

Toshiba Satellite Click 2 L30W Convertible Review

69% Toshiba Satellite Click 2 L30W Convertible Review

Budgetary constraints. Detachable keyboard base? Check. IPS touchscreen, svelte metallic casing, Windows 8.1? Check, check, check. It all sounds enticing, but it’s what Toshiba had to cut that sends the Click 2 along an uphill battle.

76% No. 1 Vphone I6 Smartphone Review

The clone wars. An iPhone 6 for less than $150? Certainly too good to be true, of course. However, you'd be surprised at what this Vphone I6 clone does right for such an inexpensive and ambitious device.

Apple iPad Air 2 (A1567 / 128 GB / LTE) Tablet Review

87% Apple iPad Air 2 (A1567 / 128 GB / LTE) Tablet Review

Ironed and strengthened. Even slimmer and faster but just as sophisticated, enduring and elegant as its predecessor. The iPad Air 2 is surrounded by many superlatives and is really the fastest iPad so far. But there are also some smaller drawbacks, and iOS 8.1 is still not working perfectly.

Motorola Moto G2 Smartphone Review

84% Motorola Moto G2 Smartphone Review

Second generation. In 2013 the Motorola Moto G was an inexpensive smartphone and a real competitor for mainstream smartphones with its comprehensive features. Now there is a successor, and we want to know if the Moto G2 can impress us as well. Let us find out in our in-depth review.

Samsung Galaxy Alpha SM-G850F Smartphone Review

89% Samsung Galaxy Alpha SM-G850F Smartphone Review

Alpha leader. Samsung only used plastic even for its premium line in the past. This is now different, and it launches its Galaxy Alpha smartphone with an aluminum bezel. The phone places a claim on the smartphone crown with its strong components, but that still belongs to its company brother - Galaxy S5.

Now even cheaper. The price of the Samsung Galaxy Ace 4 is below 200 Euros (~$250), which is 70 Euros (~$88) cheaper than its predecessor. You still get LTE and even some improvements like a larger display. But is the Ace 4 only cheaper, or is it also better?

84% Huawei Ascend Mate 7 Phablet Review

Apple challenger. Buyers looking for an alternative that has roughly the same size as the iPhone 6 and (only) want to spend about 500 Euros (~$635) should certainly look closer at the new, elegant, and swift Huawei phablet. Are its screen, casing, performance, and the stylish UI 3.0 a challenge for Apple's much pricier newcomer?

Touchscreen gamer. Lenovo launches the biggest IPS touchscreen Y Series model yet with the 17.3-inch Y70. Features remain largely unchanged from the Y50, including the GTX 860M GPU. For $1399, can this sleek black and red powerhouse hold its own against other 17-inch gaming notebooks?

Slimmed down. The second generation of the iPad Air got even thinner. The new Apple A8X triple-core processor is a surprise.

LG G Pad 10.1 V700 Tablet Review

79% LG G Pad 10.1 V700 Tablet Review

Déjà-vu. LG's G Pad 10.1 looks a lot like its smaller brother, the G Pad 8.0. The equipment is almost identical, and the only obvious difference is the larger screen. Again LG opts for limited performance and a long battery life in this case. However, the review sample tends to dim the brightness when it gets too warm.

Asus Zenfone 6 A600CG Smartphone Review

82% Asus Zenfone 6 A600CG Smartphone Review

Design for a small price. This was Asus' goal for the Zenfone 6, a 6-inch phablet with HD resolution, bright IPS touchscreen, a powerful Intel Atom dual-core SoC, as well as 16 GB flash storage for a fair price of 279 Euros (~$353, RRP). The combination looks promising.

Chicken-breasted long-distance runner. LG offers an 8-inch tablet for less than 200 Euros (~$254) that has an excellent battery life dubbed G Pad 8.0. However, the runtimes are at the expense of having a weak SoC, which is usually found in entry-level smartphones, among other things. Nevertheless, Android 4.4 KitKat and known software features from LG help make the tablet an interesting product.
